Did Lancashire ever play cricket matches at Hesketh Park? I remember my dad taking me to watch Lancashire play- I think it was Surrey ( I was only young and it was a long time ago) I remember sitting on the grass close to the boundary rope. It was a lovely summer's day. The chap who did the fielding close to where we sat was named Entwistle and he had a bit of a chat with the spectators. I have some really nice memories of visiting Southport. No one day cricket in those days!
